toby Buckland Harvest festival at forde Abbey, 16th/17th September '17
not long to go until this event at this beautiful venue in Chard, Somerset. Set in impressive grounds of this stately home, it should be a most enjoyable event. We will be taking our bird cage, Victorian water pump and various benches, including the rare metamorphic bench. and a stunning metal French folding daubed which has been newly re-upholstered in ticking stripe fabric
at last we have completed the restoration of our Victorian metamorphic garden bench! Made from English Douglas fir with cast iron ends, it can be used in 3 different ways from a traditional bench, to a picnic bench (can also be used as a writing slope as used in the old days). Not many would have one of these in their garden!
french day bed
i'm rather excited about this beauty! It's an old French folding day bed which we've just upholstered and the cushions will follow soon, but I couldn't wait to release a photo ..... we plan to take it to Toby Buckland's Harvest Festival at Forde Abbey in September.
we have a rather splendid old birdcage which we believe to be Victorian. It measures nearly 5ft tall and is made of white painted wood & metal. It would look amazing housing some lush greenery in a conservatory/ garden room, but is a thing of beauty on its own. It will be added to our website very soon.
